The Bicycle Shop Decal Project

Found this fun site - well, fun to bike geek me - that posts nothing but dealer stickers.  Old school and new.  Current and long gone shops.  Little adhesive backed pieces of bike culture and history.

My old shop, Whippany Cycle, where I spun wrenches and made a few friends for life back in the early '80s, even featured for all to gawk at.  I got a kick out of cruising though the pics - shops I've visited, purchased from, or know folks that worked there - cool little reminders.

Maybe you'll get a kick out of it too...


  1. awesome! I once worked at Temple Terrace Schwinn near Tampa Florida. "Where good times Roll!"

  2. Neat Project. It's always fun to find an old bike and see where it's origins are from. I recently restored a Peugeot that came from Hawaii!
